Day 11

Read 1 Samuel 16:1-13

Scripture reminds us that God works His plans in ways we wouldn’t expect. This was true when He made David king, but even more so with the coming of David’s greatest descendant, King Jesus.

Reflection: What does “greatness” look like in our world today? What does it look like through God’s eyes?

Prayer Point: Pray that God would develop in us not only a heart like David’s but more importantly a heart like Christ’s.

Families/Kids: Read The Jesus Storybook Bible: The Teeny, Weenie…True King

Reflection: Why didn’t God choose David’s older brothers? What made David a better choice?

Prayer Point: Thank God that when He looks at us it’s not what’s on the outside that matters most but what’s on the inside. Pray that what’s “inside” us would look like what’s “inside” Jesus.
